Ellinikon (Greek: Ελληνικό, meaning "Greek") is a suburb of Athens, Greece approximately 11.5 miles from Athens city centre. It was the home of the Ellinikon International Airport (built in 1937) which has now been replaced by Eleftherios Venizelos in Spata as the major international airport of Athens.
Ellinikon is bordered on the south by Glyfada, on the north by Alimos (Kalamaki) and on the northeast by Argyroupolis. On the east is Mt Hymettus. Much of the eastern border is formed by Vouliagmeni Avenue while Poseidon Avenue runs parallel to the seacoast on the west connecting Ellinikon to Piraeus. The town hall is on the east side. One third of the municipality was covered by the airport which was replaced largely by athletic parks for the Athens Olympics of 2004. Much of the residential areas are in the eastern part of Ellinikon.
Elliniko has schools, lyceums, gymnasiums, churches, a post office, banks, beaches and squares (plateies).
